    Infinity Blade is beautiful, gripping and intense. Most importantly, its creators delivered a console quality experience in your hands, so while it's a wonderfully designed and thoroughly enjoyable brawler, this title also stands out as a killer app, the type of thing that solidifies Apple's iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch as legitimate contenders to the portable gaming throne.

    Throw in online and local multiplayer, and Asphalt 6: Adrenaline is one of the best racers you can buy. We would have preferred more cars, but this is pound for pound one of the coolest games on the App Store. On that note, do yourself a favor and splurge on the $6.99 iPad edition.

    It's an outstanding experience regardless of which control scheme (tilt, virtual slider) you use. Kudos to Sega for releasing such an excellent port that instantly became the best kart racer on the App Store.

    One of the most creative and thoroughly entertaining apps we've had the pleasure of experiencing. It's smartly designed, attractive and fun, as well as a showpiece for anyone on the fence about purchasing an "i" device. Bravo.

    Peggle: Dual Shot is the ideal game to take on a vacation or long road trip, as it'll pass the time and leave you smiling. Pick it up and go Peggle crazy.

    While not a direct Metroid knockoff, this challenging and physics based App bears a striking resemblance to Nintendo's classic sci-fi adventures. Both gorgeous and incredibly thrilling, it's without question one of the App Store's best.

    The in-game timer says that I have poured 33 hours into the cart so far, and I estimate that I've completed half of what the game has to offer. DS owners who opt to skip Dual Strike are missing out on the most full-featured and addictive title released for the system yet.

    Phenomenal...Instead of shoehorning the Xbox 360 adventure onto the App Store with a virtual analog stick, Activision played to the iPhone and iPad's strengths, creating a game players of all ages can enjoy. Bravo.

    Banner Saga is one of the greatest adventure games, mobile or otherwise, that's come around in quite a long time. Not only is it interesting and accessible, but it's clean, ornate, and enjoyable through and through. If you only pick out one adventure game this year on iOS, make it this one.

    We literally have nothing bad to say about World of Goo. It's a wonderful puzzle game that every iPad owner needs to download. Prepare to spend hours, if not weeks, playing this one.

    Bottom line, this is more of the same and we couldn't be happier. Angry Birds Seasons HD is both addictive and challenging, and you'd be crazy not to pony up the cash and download it ASAP.

    An enormous amount of pre-planning is required to set up that perfect chain-reaction, and the intense excitement that accompanies the successful realization of your careful strategizing is both hypnotic and thrilling.

    Think of it as paying homage to the turn-based strategy games that came before. Considering the great storyline, the superb voice acting, the graphics, mission creation, and mission downloading, you will never grow old of Field Commander.

    Bird & Beans doesn't use the Nintendo DSi camera, microphone or even the second screen, but for $2, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better value in the DSi lineup.

    Even put up against the likes of Animal Crossing and Pokémon X & Y , The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is easily the best 3DS game of 2013. It's quite simply a work of art that deserves to be part of your private collection.

    We're also huge fans of the gyroscopic controls, allowing you to aim Link's slingshot by physically tilting the system, or going into a first person view to get a better look at the beautiful world. Great stuff.

    Mobile game sequels are hit or miss, as some developers just slap a new skin on an older game. Halfbrick did that with one of the game's modes, but the Bandito mode as well as the humor in the Puss in Boots character makes this version unique. If you played the original, the new mode is worth the purchase, and if you never experienced Fruit Ninja, Puss in Boots is the perfect way to get started.

    Bottom line, Cut the Rope HD is one of the best games for Apple's iOS and a steal at $1.99. Play it immediately.

    It's a neat concept that both companies executed wonderfully, from the different units to the touch controls and spectacular graphics that are on par with and arguably better than anything we've seen on Sony's PSP, at least within the tower defense genre.

    Tilt to Live is without question one of the most polished and fun iPhone games we've played in months. For two bucks, there's no reason why you shouldn't download it ASAP.

    It just goes to show that sometimes, it's the simplest of concepts that make a hit.

    Don't miss out on Planet Puzzle League for the DS. Its presentation may not suit everyone but it's really going to be hard arguing against buying a game because it's just not fashionable.

    If you have a PSP (or PSP go, as the game will be available for download on the PlayStation Network), LittleBigPlanet should be your next purchase.

    That ChAIR was able to create such a wonderful sequel in a year is a true testament to the talented people working at the studio. With this in mind, Infinity Blade 2 is one of the year's most thrilling video games, a gorgeous and feature packed adventure that demands your attention. In terms if iOS killer apps, it stands alone.

    Not a guarantee that it's a game for everyone, but rather a big fat A+ for Alphadream when it comes to Advanced Game Design. This game is the cream of the portable gaming crop, and you'll be really hard-ressed not to be taken in by at least one of it's plentiful charms.

    Whether or not Akihiro Hino and the crew at Level-5 built the world upon the foundation of the puzzles or vice versa, it melds into a cohesive miracle that's greater than the sum of its undeniably fantastic parts.
